Elsewhere, Jaime is at a restaurant with a friend she suddenly has (probably one of the sitters from last week, but I ain't checking) and she's saying that she really acted nasty to Becca and isn't sure what's wrong with her. Oh, I don't know -- the robot parts? The friend tells her not to be so hard on herself, what with the dead fiancé and bratty sister -- and just then, here comes the other friend. Wow, her friends really look alike. Maybe they're from cloning! Her whole life is a lie! I...yeah. Never mind. Jaime puts her hand up to her ear as we hear a loud squeaking, but when they ask, Jaime says her ear is ringing. Heh. Friend Number Two announces that she's just gotten into law school! Yay! That will be so much fun. She should totally do that. As the friends burble on about visiting New York and such, Jaime gets uncomfortable and excuses herself, fully twenty seconds or so after her second friend showed up. I guess that would be the friend who smells.
Bookstore. Jaime is browsing. Specifically, she's flipping through What Color Is Your Parachute?, probably filling out some kind of flower-shaped diagram in her head, when Isaiah Washington, of all people, strolls up and inquires. Now, look. I could sit here for a very long time giving you my impressions of Isaiah Washington, but I am so over that entire story that I really, really won't. Suffice it to say that as far as I'm concerned, everything that has come out of his mouth since the initial triggering incident has been bullshit, and my only problem with what Grey's Anatomy did is that they didn't do it sooner. Whether that means he shouldn't get the next job is a whole weird thing unto itself, but as far as I'm concerned, that's all I have to say about it. Die, scandal, die!
So anyway, Isaiah Washington is walking his dog in the bookstore (?) and explains to Jaime that after he read Parachute, he started a nonprofit that gives clean water to Third World countries. She looks nonplussed. She's more comfortable after she bends down to play with "Scrap," Isaiah Washington's Jack Russell terrier. Ultimately, he (Isaiah, not the dog) introduces himself as "Antonio," and she introduces herself back. He asks if she's "seriously considering a life change," and she says she's not sure. She just "got out of a relationship" with a guy who, as a matter of fact, died. Antonio is sorry. They do the "I don't know why I'm telling you this"/"sometimes strangers are easier" thing for a moment. She tells him it feels like all her friends are moving along, and she's just stuck in one place, with her bionic legs and her magic eye and her dead boyfriend and her flibbety-floo. I'm actually not sure Parachute will help her, because it's not like it has sections for, like, "Do your skills include super-hearing?" Antonio busts out "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger," which, thanks, genius. Maybe he's talking about his recent tabloid-y experiences, but...I hope not. She's all, "That is SO TRUE," and it's a little too punny for my tastes, really.
